Just do it

Maskless man

A door-to-door salesman riding a "unicycle, motorized contraption" around Cooper-Young sparked a novel-worthy mystery on Nextdoor last week. He wore no mask, seemed to be selling bug/termite services, had no cards for identification, and was just generally "sketchy," according to Nextdoor users.

Speculation had it that he and his co-workers were from Texas, staying and partying hard at an apartment complex in Germantown, and working for a Mormon-owned company based in Provo, Utah.

"Mormons! Texans! A unicyclist! Pest control party animals! Maybe all this will be fodder for a novelist amongst us. Meanwhile I hope they mask up or, better, leave us alone," wrote one Nextdoor user.
